Schedule Configuration Backup
In order to take a backup of your device configurations, you need to first discover your devices using Network Configuration Manager. The tool also allows you to add devices in bulk. To learn how, read more
Once the devices are discovered you can proceed to scheduling configuration backup.
Device configurations need to be backed up often in order to maintain a repository of backups ready to be restored in case of emergencies. In large enterprises with more number of devices, this task of getting the device configuration backup up becomes a huge mundane task taking up most of the time of an admin. Being able to
schedule configuration backups
will free up a network admin's time to do productivity enhancing tasks.
With Network Configuration Manager, an admin can
schedule configuration backup
at any time interval. Notifications for failure in backup and changes in configuration can also be configured while
scheduling configuration backup.
Network Configuration Manager allows the admin to select individual devices to be scheduled for configuration backup and also, bulk schedule up-to 250 devices per schedule. The configuration backup can be scheduled hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and also for once. This gives the admin the flexibility of
scheduling configuration backup
after working hours when the task will not clog the bandwidth.
Email notifications can be configured to receive alerts about the schedule. The notification can be configured for multiple email addresses.
Although scheduling is a great time-saver, a syslog based configuration backup misses no change in your network. With automated configuration backups, minimise your effort and trigger backups for every valid configuration change in your network, so that you have the latest configuration files to save your day.
